If it's a question of durability and ability to stand up to the elements, we'd have no problem voyaging off the tarmac in this jacket. It's got a waterproof liner, removable thermo liner if it's too hot, large zippered vents backed with a sturdy rubberized mesh, plenty of storage for most everything you'd want on your person while riding and as a bonus won't look out of place during a weekday commute.

We designed it mainly as our on-road, everyday riding jacket. That being said, the jacket features many of the same qualities you'd find in a jacket marketed as an "adventure off-road" jacket. The line between the two seems to us to be getting more and more blurred in today's market. Poke around RevZilla's adventure jacket section and you'll see many products that sport the same or less features as the TRANS.URBAN being marketed as adventure jackets for off-road use.

In our eye the main thing that would differentiate the TRANS.URBAN from a full off-road adventure jacket would be the absence of a removable waterproof liner, and perhaps being styled in a more subdued fashion then some adventure specific gear.

Hope that's of some use!
